A Lockheed C-130H of the Fuerza Aérea de Chile Grupo de Aviación No. 10 was reported missing on a flight to Antarctica at 18:13 LT.
The aircraft was flying personnel to the Chilean Antarctic base 'Base Presidente Eduardo Frei Montalva' to check on a floating fuel supply line and other equipment. Seventeen crew members and 21 passengers were on board. The flight departed Santiago at 10:21 and landed at Punta Arenas at 14:44. After refueling there, the aircraft took off at 16:53. Waypoint HORNO was passed at 17:44 and the aircraft continued towards the next waypoint, DRAKE. The last known position of the aircraft was registered at 18:13, eight minutes before it would have passed DRAKE.
On December 11 debris and human remains were found at sea. It is presumed that all 38 on board were killed in the crash.

The C-130H was delivered to the U.S. Marine Corps in 1978 as a KC-130R refueling plane (160628). It was supplied to Chile as a C-130H transport version in July 1995.
